Mayfair Insurance Company Limited is a leading business insurer with operations in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Zanzibar, Rwanda and Zambia in Africa. We’re proud to be rated A-(KE) by the Global Credit Rating (GRC) Agency on our Claims Paying Ability.

Our business purpose is to anticipate the risks that companies will face in the future and innovate insurance solutions ahead of the market. We understand that our success depends on the continuous development of our management and staff, within a collaborative culture that instils a strong sense of ownership.

So, we need to employ creative solution designers, not traditional processors. And it’s for that reason that we have decided to support MASK (Mobile Art in Schools in Kenya) as part of our Corporate Social Responsibility programme.

MASK is committed to encouraging creativity in the young people of Africa. Giving them the opportunity to release their inner potential, and showing them new ways to contribute at school, in society and later in the world of work. MASK’s definition of creativity embraces entrepreneurship and has already been shown to have a positive effect on the employability of young people. Encouraging them to look at opportunities from all angles, and to be able to present their ideas to others with greater impact.

As Mayfair Insurance, we believe that creativity is one way of ensuring the future growth of businesses in Africa. An insurance against the uncertainties of the future, if you will.

With eagerness, Mayfair Insurance is therefore sponsoring the 2018 MASK Prize which will be held on Saturday, 26th May 2018 at Michael Joseph Art Centre, Nairobi. Further details regarding the prize gala can be accessed on

Our partnership with MASK now means that the creativity of future generations is In Safe Hands.
